Ner Ner !

Don Babbage (Brit) invented the Mechanical computer a century ago, GEC Marconi (Italian name Brit firm) invented the first ever electornic, software based computer half a century ago, British Dissident Lawyers invented the Declaration of Independance and hence the USA nearly 2 and a half centuries ago

I hate it when they do that.....

        Hmmm... Normally I lurk in these forums, preferring to enjoy the high comedy, but I just had to respond to this line from huckers:

"I am from the UK, where the internet was born (in 1970's)..."


As I recall, the internet was born from ARPANET, a pet project of DARPA, and heavily influenced by UC Berkeley and other universities...

Did someone move DARPA or UCB to the UK and not tell me?

I hate it when they do that.
